ManGlaze - Mayo - Matte White Nailpolish - Attempt #2

Hey there!

I posted on Twitter that I got my new polish in the mail from ManGlaze, Ink this week.  My order consisted of one bottle of matte white polish name Mayonaisse, or The Holy Crap!  :)

I am terribly and deeply in love with all the other products that ManGlaze has produced, most especially FuggenUgly, the original matte grey polish (although it has experienced a few formula changes since first appearance in the mid 2000's.)

Anywho.  My first impression of this polish was that it was a looooot stickier and thicker than other polished I have used in the past.  It is also NOT a "Wite-Out" type of white.  It has a delicate shimmer that is pretty much unnoticeable once the polish is dry, but while it is being applied, it is quite pretty!

Now, I am not the world's most amazing polish applying-person, so please forgive my shoddy work.  The day I got this polish, I was sitting at my computer, put it on my nails and after the first round I ruined it.

It does NOT dry completely for a while.  The outside will look dry, but it is not.  I do realize that this could be a problem with application on my part, too, so please bear with me.

(P.S.  If you want this polish and need some amazing tips, go to this blog post on  She has some really awesome tips and they did help this second time around.)

So, the rundown on Mayo:

  • Beautiful, clean white without being stark, yellow or chalky
  • Thick, need a steady, smart hand to apply without streaking.  Also many coats.
  • Takes a bit longer to dry than most other nail polishes.  Certainly NOT one of those polish-and-go polishes.
  • Awesome fantastic matte.  LOVE.
 I need to get a brush to clean up my cuticles, but for this I just used a small knitting needle to get in my cuticles since I kept getting the polish up under them.  Sheesh!!  Hopefully next time I do a mani I will take pics in the day time... And clean up my mess.  :P

How do you like this white??
